Find Pinteresting Blogs and Win Big!

Who doesn't love I'm not in the classroom anymore, but I still spend far too much money there on children's books! That's one reason I'm thrilled to announce an exciting new contest on Pinterest in which you could win one of two $200 gift cards to!

Charity Preston of the Organized Classroom Blog is the mastermind behind this very special event which is sponsored by Marygrove College and eleven teacher blogs.

Here's how to enter:
  1. Click to go to Charity's Pinteresting Teacher Blog board where you'll find 12 "Pinteresting" teacher blogs. 
  2. Create a board on your own Pinterest account titled "Pinteresting Teacher Blogs" and repin all 13 images from Charity's board onto your own board. Be sure to pin the pink and white contest badge in addition to the teacher blogs so that your followers will have access to the contest rules. Note: By the time this blog post goes live, there will be at least 50 other boards with the same name. Make sure you pin the 13 required items from Charity's Pinteresting Teacher Blog board!
  3. Complete the entry process by filling out and submitting this Google Doc form before 10 p.m. EST on February 26th.
That's it!  Follow those three steps and you'll be entered to win a $200 gift card! and great teacher blogs - what a winning combination!

By the way, while you're in your Pinterest account, why not follow my Pinterest boards? All of my boards are on educational themes, and you'll find lots of great free resources there!

What would you do with $200? Start dreaming, because YOU could be one of the winners! Even if you don't win one of the gift cards, you'll still have a collection of great teaching blogs to explore!

P. S. Thanks to all the blogs who joined with me to sponsor this event including Marygrove College MAT blog, Sunny Days in Second Grade, Technically Invisible, Sub Hub, Teaching Resources by Shelley Gray, Cooperative Learning 365, The Organized Classroom Blog, 3rd Grade Gridiron, The Lesson Plan Diva, Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies, and The Cornerstone for Teachers!
